Hornepayne and Manitouwadge Get New Relationship Manager

Norman Sandberg new relationship manager for the NWMO in Hornepayne and Manitouwadge area.

As the communities of Hornepayne, Manitouwadge and surrounding region move forward in the Adaptive Phased Management (APM) process, they will be working with a new Relationship Manager.

Norman Sandberg, a veteran in the municipal sector and, most recently, Relationship Manager for the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) in Blind River and Elliot Lake, has taken over in the same capacity for Hornepayne and Manitouwadge and area.

Norman takes over from John Fraser who has retired. This will be an easy transition as he has worked in a similar role with the NWMO for the past six years with another region. Norman is looking forward to continuing his work in Hornepayne and Manitouwadge and area.

“I’m very grateful for the warm welcome from both communities,” said Norman. “Our team is looking forward to building on all the great collaborative work already accomplished, and moving forward together in this learning process.”

Norman brings a wealth of municipal experience, having served on the Association of Municipalities in Ontario (AMO) and Ontario Small Urban Municipalities (OSUM) board for six years, including a stint as AMO President in 2010. He was also a councillor in the Town of Collingwood for 13 years and participated in the NWMO’s Municipal Forum.
